Extremely Low FPS/Radeon HD 7700 2gb/AMD FX 6200 6-core 3.8ghz/8 gb corsair DDR3/990fxa-ud3 mobo

Heya guys,

This is a first time build that I put together, and I noticed that when im playing any games, such as Tera or Skyrim....I'm getting extremely low FPS, in the range of 8-15 FPS, I'm not sure why it would be getting such bad performance...the only thing I really skimped on was HDD as opposed to the SSD....I have no idea what it could be....maybe its just a crappy rig, no lidea..I thought I invested in some decent parts.

If anyone has any suggestions as to what may be the problem...it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

  1. did you download updated drivers
  2. sounds like a driver or bios issue. Make sure your motherboard's bios is the latest version. then make sure all the drivers are properly installed for the motherboard. Fresh install all the amd graphics card drivers as well. if that doesn't fix the problem try a fresh system install... it's most likely your problem is software.

    I'll go ahead and try that right now and let you know how it goes.....when you say fresh install, do you mean just install the new drivers...or a specific way of uninstalling the old ones and putting the new ones...the only reason I ask is because last time I used the ATI uninstaller it wiped all my usb chipsets, and I had no mouse or keyboard.
  4. hit the windows key, then type device manager. click on the display adapter, right click on the radeon HD 7700 Series device (it won't say 7770, it will just be 7700), uninstall all of them. look for anything with a yellow ?

    if there is anything with a yellow ? you know there are uninstalled devices. either way we'll assume there is a driver issue at play. go to gigabyte's webpage, look up your 990fxa-ud3, download the latest driver for EVERYTHING. install it all. get the bios update, update the bios.

    restart your computer and install the latest whql radeon driver for your graphics card. see how your hardware behaves. if you still are drawing terrible fps, download hwmonitor, and gpuid, install both, get the furmark benching software, run all 3 programs and watch your gpu's behavior. watch the temps mostly. watch the voltages... we need to make sure the hardware is working right. assuming no issues (take a screenie with all 3 windows open, post it here) we'll go forward with the troubleshooting at that point.

    appreciate the step by step direction...im on it right now.

    Thank you

    So I downloaded those drivers...I wasn't able to load them all because some don't come with executables....so I don't know what I need to do to install them....and some come with multiple executables and folders which makes it even more confusing...I would post a screenshot.....but that brings me to my other question....I don't see the option to post images in these forums :(

    Edit: figured it out...heres an example of multiple .exe and an example no .exe which im not sure how to install, these were all downloaded from that mobo link.

  7. So I put all the drivers I could on the mobo....reinstalled the graphics driver and noticed no visible increase in FPS.......feel like a monkey humpin' a football
  8. :(

    might have a bum gpu...

    do you see something that might make you think something in particular is wrong with it?
  10. Hello, Mystery2Me I'm sure that somethings wrong with your rig, I tried your specs on game-debate and they say that you can play max settings 50-60fps no prob on skyrim,COMPUTERS USUALLY READ AMD RADEON HD "7700" TO 7750. According to some sources AMD Radeon HD7700/7750 only runs properly on a compatible motherboard for example "AMD A55 Chipset Motherboard" . May i know what motherboard you are using?
